UVM Morgan Horse Farm
A Sight to See
I was very fortunate to have been given a private tour of the UVM Morgan Horse Farm located at 74 Battell Drive in Weybridge, Vermont. Constructed in 1878, this historic farm is a wonderful place to visit and to learn more about the delightful Morgan horse.
Per the Vermont Tourism Network:
“This working horse farm has been a breeding and training facility for Morgan horses since it was constructed in 1878. Now, a non-profit university owned, educational entity the UVM MHF stewards continuation of the breed and education about this important Vermont State Animal. The UVM Morgan Horse Farm offers guided tours, a video presentation and a gift shop. Visitors are able to enjoy some of the finest examples of this breed within our herd of 40-60 registered Morgan horses. Come learn about the Vermont State Animal, America’s first breed of horse – The Morgan Horse.”

A Beautiful Gait
I was mesmerized as this Morgan trotted by with its graceful, high-stepping gait. The rhythmic two-beat prance was truly a beautiful thing to both see and hear.
